As one of the smallest publicly-held companies in Chain Store Guide’s database of Chain Restaurant Operators, the franchisor of the Dick’s Wings & Grill and Dick’s Wings Express concepts operates no restaurants and instead derives all revenue from franchise fees and royalties. In addition to its trademark wings, the restaurants offer a variety of other food items such as specialty burgers, sandwiches, salads, wraps, and desserts.
Full-service restaurants range in size from 3,200 to 6,000 square feet, with an average size of 4,000 square feet for restaurants that have opened in the last three years. Express restaurants range in size from 1,200 to 1,500 square feet, with an average size of 1,300 square feet for express restaurants that have opened in the last three years. Future full-service restaurants will range in size from 3,000 to 5,000 and future express restaurants will range in size from 1,200 to 1,500 square feet.
The company has struggled financially in recent years but has brought in consultants “to strengthen its strategic management, financial and communications capabilities.” Current plans call for 8-9 additional franchised restaurants within the existing Florida territory, expansion into new territories in the South and Southeastern U.S., and growth through acquisition of financial interests in large numbers of franchised restaurants.
